John Logie Baird

EDM number 981 in 1989-90, proposed by John McFall on 10/05/1990.

That this House recognises the outstanding achievements of John Logie Baird, that lad o' pairts from Helenburgh whom history will record as being the person who invented television and radar technology; applauds the efforts of the University of Strathclyde to establish a permanent John Logie Baird Visitor and Research Centre; and suggests that some form of recognition be given to his wife and surviving family in gratitude for the life and talents of this man, who was a Jules Verne with a difference - a visionary who made his dreams real.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
